Systematic Theology Series

Systematic theologies are some of my favorite books. I have nearly 50 in my print and digital libraries and a list of more than two hundred others that I’m working to see added to Logos Bible Software‘s already impressive digital offerings. The vast majority of systematic theologies are written by one author, and more often than not they fill a single volume. But there are a couple of “systematic theologies” that are made up of a series of books featuring a different author and volume on each of the main themes of evangelical theology.

Two series that I’m fairly well acquainted with are Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology (Crossway’s listing) and IVP’s Contours of Christian Theology (IVP’s listing).
